Warm Nordic lighting

hidden

The very first post of this blog five years ago was about a Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen's lamp. Back then I was constantly searching the web for midcentury furniture and lighting amazed by all the great designs and craftsmanship. Today, still amazed, I happily discovered that Warm Nordic is producing again many of the iconic pieces of that time. The company embraces Scandinavia's beauty, understanding of materials and crafts tradition and in close dialogue with the families behind the classic designs, carries out the design heritage of icons such as Arne Hovmand-Olsen, Hans Olsen, Knud Færch and Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen.

Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen (1913 - 2004) played an important role in Danish lamp design. From the 1950s onwards, he took the lead in the world of modern lighting during the heyday of Danish furniture design. As a licensed ornamental metalworker, he possessed an experimental, yet balanced understanding of materials, creating innovative, high quality lamps with an international, yet Nordic look.
